We are very excited to announce that we received some great awards at the Illinois State Fair. Our Kickapoo, Jakes Wheel Habanero, Vermilion River Blue, Spicy Cheese Curds, and Herbed Cheese Curds all received Blue Ribbons at the fair.  Our Vermilion River Blue won Grand Champion in the Blue Cheese category!  Please join me in congratulating our Head Cheesemaker, Adrian Buff.  Yo Adrian, you did it!  Adrian accepted the awards on Tuesday and is pictured here, holding the Vermilion River Blue cheese.  Standing next to Adrian are the gentlemen who had the winning bid for our cheese, George Obernagle and Joe Hamilton.  Thanks to Cindy of Cagwin Cattle Serv for sharing the photo.
